Plot Synopsis

Casey and Ethan Jones of Austin, TX wanted a second child, and instead they were surprised by quintuplets on Jan. 16, 2009. The Jones' are now learning to live a new kind of life that includes their older daughter (Eliot McKenna) and, of course, their surprise quintuplets (Ryan Elizabeth; Brooklyn Grace; Lila Addison; Britton Faith and Jack William). During Baby Week, Discovery Health aired a one-hour special ("Too Many Babies?") about the Jones family on Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 8pm ET, which later aired again as "Quintuplet Surprise" on TLC on March 22, 2010 at 7pm ET. Later that same year during another Baby Week, Discovery Health aired a second one-hour special ("Too Many Babies? How They Do It") about the Jones family on July 14, 2010 at 9pm ET.
On Sunday, May 18, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC aired a new one-hour special, "The 5 Turn 5," with Ethan and Casey celebrating with the Quints first slumber party. With the kids getting older and their personalities getting bigger, will the party be more than Ethan and Casey can handle?
